Description Gabz 2004-02-09 14:26:15 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.1)

Description of problem:
The default font color (under Bluecurve) for KDE desktop icons is white.
Let's assume you select no wallpaper, but rather use a completely
white background, you will notice that the title of icons on the
desktop is invisible.  under windows xp for example, and i think under
gnome, you'll see a sort of a shaded title for the icons.  this
actually makes the title of the icons slightly more visible on a
background that's got the same color.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.take the default KDE desktop from fedora (bluecurve)
2.right-click on the desktop and select "Configure Desktop"
3.choose "Background"
4.choose the "Wallpaper" tab
5.choose "No Wallpaper"
6.choose the "Background" tab
7.select a totally white color for both "Color 1" and "Color 2"

Actual Results:  you cannot read the icon names

Expected Results:  the icon name or title should become slightly
shaded to allow user to read it even if background color is exactly
the same as the font used for the title

Additional info:

This is something that is supposed to be trivial from a usability

available  in rawhide.
